Hi Helen,

I second Jenny’s suggestion, but if that still doesn’t work you can send me your CSV file off list (if you’re willing) and I can investigate and follow up.

I have found that the csv importer tends to dislike csv files generated by Microsoft Excel. Re-exporting the csv from OpenRefine or Google Sheets should resolve this issue.

Good morning all,

I'm working on importing our accession information in csv format, and keep getting this error:
I had success with importing a smaller test file earlier in our implementation process, so I'm not sure what it's getting hung up on here. Has anyone else seen this error? Any pointers are appreciated.
